Famous sites

On Saturday's guided walk of the colleges, Simon pointed out the ilex in New College cloister, which is the very tree in which Malfoy turned into a ferret! Look familiar??

And on the way back, he pointed out the house where Bill Clinton lived during his Oxford year.

He recommended the Turf Tavern by the Bridge of Sighs as a good lunch place, made famous because Inspector Morse stops there frequently for drinks (I really will watch some of these shows with increased interest once I return) and because this is where Bill didn't inhale - perhaps. No picture of it, but a pleasant place down a twisting alleyway. Had a half pint of Summer Ale in Bill's honor.
